Obiwan Kenobi arrested
Personally, I think the police are pretty darned lucky that he didn’t pull his light saber on them. Undoubtedly, they would have lost some limbs in the struggle to arrest him. Thankfully, he went along peacefully.The ever alert TORWars staff noticed that the picture in the Roseville Press Tribune didn’t look all that much like the Obi-Wan we all know and love. There was also the issue with the subtle change to the spelling of Obi-Wan. We were suspicious. After a bit of research by your intrepid TORWars reporters, it seems there may have been a bit of confusion, and our hero’s reputation remains unsullied.
It seems that the gentleman who was arrested was originally named Benjamin Cale Feit. He’s not even really a Jedi. He changed his name to Obiwan Kenobi in order to win a radio contest several years back
According to KXTV, Kenobi was behind the wheel when he allegedly hit two cars his vehicle was trying to squeeze between. The impact led to two other crashes. Police say Kenobi then sped away.
Kenobi was arrested on suspicion of hit-and-run causing injury Saturday, briefly jailed, and released on bail.
The 37-year-old, who has the same name as the Jedi master from the Star Wars movies, was arrested at his Roseville home on April 21, Roseville police Sgt. Jason Bosworth said.
The hit and run then caused a chain-reaction that caused the other two waiting cars to be hit also.
